Have you ever heard of Matcha tea? I came across this type of green tea a few years ago. I enjoy on occasion so recently I started to enjoy matcha tea a lot more because of the the health and antioxidants. Turning this tea into this delicious latte makes the green tea even more tasty!
Matcha Tea is a lot like green tea. I like to think of it as green teas ultimate cousin. You know the cousin who is good at everything lol!
Benefits of Matcha Tea
Matcha tea is a lot like green tea only it is mostly found in a powder form and way more expensive then its cousin the green tea leaves. Matcha tea has way more antioxidants including the amazing and powerful antioxidant ECG. This antioxidant compound can help with and prevent premature aging and chronic disease. Which are two issues that we all face but I would like to prevent premature aging and disease as much as I can while I am still young. I would like to Shen gracefully so matcha tea can defiantly help me with that.
Here are a few other things Matcha Tea can help prevent.
- Is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Detoxifies effectively and naturally
- Calms the mind and relaxes the body
- Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
- Enhances mood and aids in concentration
- Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
- Prevents disease
- Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
CANCER is on the rise!
If you know of anyone, or are battling this horrible illness then this tea is great!
So many of the ECG (antioxidants) benefits have been found to help fight cancer by helping to dump out the free radicals in thee body. Drinking one cup of matcha Tea can help restore and preserve the body’s integral well-being and balance.

Bullet Proof Matcha Tea
I am a huge coffee fan. I make my coffee bullet proof daily. Sometime I like to mix things up so I decided to try and make my beloved matcha tea in the bullet proof way. Trading out coffee grounds for matcha powder.
Haven’t heard of BULLET PROOF before? You can check out my blog post and video tutorial by clicking here to learn more about why I make my coffee bullet proof, as well as why using healthy fats in my coffee such as; grass fed butter and MCT oil/coconut oil are beneficial to you!
I also love all the added health benefits that come with making my tea this way “the bullet proof way”. By using healthy fats and oils, along with my secret hormone balancing ingredient MACA powder. Which makes this one cup of tea so nutrient dense and full of vitamin, mineral, antioxidants, and also keeps me full for awhile.
Maca Powder Supplement
I first came upon maca powder 4 years ago when I found out I had PCOS . At the age of 32 I was diagnosed infertile. My husband and I wanted one last child so we tried for 2 years not knowing I had PCOS. As soon as I was diagnosed I decided to take the holistic route and work on my nutrition. However I didn’t get pregnant naturally. We used a fertility drug called clomid. I also decided I would take whatever natural supplements I can to help with hormone regulation for women and for my husband. I started clomid at the same time I started taking Maca powder as a supplement.
The reason why I started to take maca powder and still do are for these reasons:
- Helps to elevate testosterone in men and eliminates hormonal problems in women, especially who suffer from PCOS
- Improves sex drive in women and men (which helps when your trying to conceive)!
- Helps with overall stress
- Increased brain function and mental clarity
- Aids in diabetic support (especially for women with PCOS)
I can go on and on and if you want to read more about maca powder check out this site here.
Maca is a great super food supplement to add to my latte because the flavor is a little nutty and it goes very well with the earthy tea flavors of matcha tea
Drink up! A cup for her and a cup for him!
